hardball_cramer_eisenbrey.jpg CNBC host Jim Cramer has a message for the hard-working men and women of the United Auto Workers Union currently on strike: sit down, shut up and be happy with less so GM execs can stay rich. Today on Hardball, Cramer does his best tough guy act, fortunately Ross Eisenbrey, Vice President of the Economic Policy Institute is there to bring some sanity to the set. Eisenbrey reminds Cramer that the UAW strike is about keeping jobs in America and that this war against the working class isn't just about unions, it's happening to non-union workers as well.

Matthews: " Do you see a future five, ten years from now where we don't have an auto industry in this country, Jim Cramer?"

Cramer: "If you don't break the UAW we won't. There's no real reasons to make cars here."
